Thursday Thirteen # 12

Thirteen Random Things....
  1. Today is Edition #52 for Thursday Thirteen, so they are celebrating the one year anniversary! It's my 12th Edition, and I must say, I honestly look foward to it every week. It's been a great way to meet friends! Happy TT Everyone!
  2. Since I have been doing TT for these weeks, the most comments I have ever received is 32. My goal is 50...can you help me?
  3. When I start visiting other TT's, I start at the bottom first...they were the first ones to sign in for TT, and I think they deserve the respect...they sometimes get lost when they are at the bottom of the list. I visit, on average, about 60-70 TT-ers each Thursday.
  4. It's Birthday Month! Did you know it's birthday month? I love birthdays, and I love birthday month. If you have time, you should read the Birthday Month post below, but if you don't, you can send cards, letters, emails, cash and gifts to me all month. Why? Because it's my BIRTHDAY! I share this month with lots of friends and family, but none more important than my husband, who, did I mention will be the BIG 3-0! :0
  5. I am already contemplating next Thursday, since me and the ladies in my office will be leaving on a trip to the beach! I wonder if I will have enough time to post my TT in the AM, or if I should post it the night before....hm.
  6. I am co-leading a presentation on Saturday morning at our former church about how to love and care for your Sunday School. I am really excited about it and not nervous. That used to scare me, the fact that I wasn't nervous, but learned I am not nervous for many reasons...I am comfortable speaking in front of people, the Lord has given me a passion for creating a caring Sunday School, and seeing other people exude the qualities of Christ and His Love...well, there's isn't anything sweeter.
  7. Last week I helped create the newsletter for my bosses church and I wrote the front page article. I love writing, which is part of the reason I started this blog, but it was the first time I wrote something and saw it in print and then helped send it to 100 families! The Lord gave me the words, so I pray it was a blessing.
  8. I made a dentist appointment yesterday with my favorite hygentist. She is one of my mom's good friends and until recently worked with my mom at the office. However, she has moved on to bigger and better pastures and so I have decided to follow her to her new office. This will be the first time in 28, soon to be 29 years that I have not gone to my mom's office to have my teeth cleaned. Truth be told, I can't stand the new doctor's at my mom's place and they aren't treating my mom all that great, so I am taking my business elsewhere. hm.
  9. We are going on vacation next month to Florida! We will see the fam and enjoy Disney while there. Yippie! The boo-bear is excited and wore his Mickey Mouse shirt yesterday. I ask him if he's going to Disney World...he replies, Yes...with Grandma. Yep, that's right, Grandma comes too, but you know, I am going tooo!!!!! She fed his mind with all sorts of Disney talk this past weekend when she kept him. :)
  10. Jeremy and I will be teaching the Creative Marriage by Ed Young Jr and his wife, Lisa, in our Discipleship classes that begin on August 20th. I enjoy Ed Young Jr and the book is fabulous! I highly recommend it for every married couple.
  11. Oh, speaking of Marriage...we had a nice celebration for our Anniversary! I did end up getting him a present...thanks to all the advice I received on that matter. He got me some earrings! They are Blue Topaz and gorgeous!
  12. Tax free weekend begins today and runs through Sunday. Great! The boo-bear needs some tennis shoes. His Cookie-Elmo shoes that light up are falling apart...I am a little dissappointed honestly.
  13. I haven't seen the sand and ocean in a little over a year. I haven't actually been to a beach and sat on it over 3 years, so next week, while I am enjoying the beach and the beach house, I will be thanking the Lord for bringing me to this place in my life. A time to rest, relax, no baby, good fellowship and good conversations about the Lord. Ahhh...I am counting the days. Tomorrow I will start counting the hours. :)

Happy early birthday! I'm glad you're enjoying the TT. I used to be able to go visit that many people but I really don't have the time anymore to do that and leave a meaningful comment. I had discovered some great blogs via the blogroll though and have made some great friends.

Have fun at the beach!
